Presentation of the Preliminary Design under the Contract „Design and Studies for Betterment of Road on SEETO Route 2a, Section Banja Luka – Ugar (IEBL) – Lašva
The presentation of the Preliminary Design under the Contract “Design and Studies for Betterment of Road on SEETO Route 2a, Section Banja Luka – Ugar (IEBL) – Lašva” was held at the FBH Roads business premises. The project is financed by the European Union’s Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance. The end users of this project are RS Roads and FBH Roads.
The project was presented by representatives of the consultant consisting of the JV IRD Engineering, Eptisa Servicios, Integra d.o.o. Mostar and IRD inženjering d.o.o. Banja Luka.
The presentation was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Transport and Communications of BiH, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Communications, FBH Roads, and the Program Manager on behalf of the EU Delegation.
The total length of the main road that is the subject of this project is about 160 km, of which 110 km is in the Federation of BiH.
One of the most significant interventions within the project is the new road alignment on the section Donji Vakuf - Turbe, which includes the Komar tunnel, which significantly shortens travel time between Donji Vakuf and Travnik, reduces winter maintenance costs and increases traffic safety on this section.
After the completion of the preliminary design, a feasibility study and the detail design will be prepared, which will ultimately be handed over to the end users (RS Roads and FBH Roads).
